Do you know what Ghost Antivirus is?
Ghost Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware application. Ghost Antivirus has been created to con and coerce PC users into purchasing its full version. Ghost Antivirus tends to spread via malicious Trojan infections, malicious downloads or it can be downloaded directly from its affiliated website. Similarly to most rogue programs, once inside a computer system, Ghost Antivirus will conduct a fake system scan. The scan will report fabricated results of an infestation of malware on the computer in question, followed by an excessive display of multiple pop-up advertisements. All results concluded from the Ghost Antivirus scan are not to be trusted, and be sure to NOT fall prey to these tactics of persuasion.
In non-techie terms:
DO NOT purchase this rogue application. The presence of Ghost Antivirus on a PC could very likely result in slow system operations, browser redirections and the disabling of Task Manager and System Restore. One should remove this dubious application as soon as it has been detected!
